Mary Beth's BIO
Although Mary Beth grew up in Detroit, it is Toledo that feels like home, especially since she and her husband, Terry, are raising their family here. Their children, Tara, Derek and Cullin were all born here and are all in school now. With grade school, high school and college tuitions all looming, it's no wonder Mary Beth looks forward to many more years working on 101.5 the River. "Miles to go before I sleep!"
Rick Woodell was born and raised in Macon, Georgia, attended the community college there and eventually the University of Georgia before embarking on a 38 year broadcasting career. Rick has worked in Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, and Texas and been a part of the programming of radio stations in Idaho, New Mexico, Colorado and California.
Before moving to Toledo, Rick was a highly rated morning show host in Greenville, South Carolina for 15 years and was co-host of "Talk of the Town," a 30 minute television travel show for Charter Communications that covered Georgia, North and South Carolina. Rick and his wife Carla moved to Toledo so he could rekindle his love for morning radio.
Rick and Carla have 4 "kids." One is Siamese...Cyan, 6 pounds of furry fury, Grayson, a loveable Gray stray from the Humane society, Frank a mini Dachshund rescue and the latest addition, Bill Blitzen, a rescued Greyhound.. Rick's son, Alex, graduated college in South Carolina and is continuing his education at the Medical College of South Carolina-Charleston.
Rick's continued love for charity work and civic pride keeps him active in the community.
"We've been here for over 7 years now. As Carla and I continue to travel the area, we're amazed at the eagerness of people to welcome us Southerners. We feel like actual Mid- westerners now! We really feel at home."
It's that time again. Here is the info for this Sunday's "Bark."
